Enjoyable series
26 August 2000 | by Mike-DDSee all my reviews

It was an enjoyable series while it lasted. Though some powers seem more potent than others (the electricity guy), each episode seeks to explore more of all the other powers, and when used in combination, boy, it's fantastic. Talk about wishing you had some of those powers and then imagining what you can do with them.
